The NGO for Portuguese development, Lay for Development, in partnership with the Cristo Rei Social and Parish Centre, was one of the winners of the BPI "la Caixa" Solidarity Prize, with the Talent Workshops project to be developed in the Caparica-Pragal neighbourhood, located in a suburban area in southern Lisbon. These two institutions are part of the Social Sector of the Jesuits in Portugal.

The award ceremony for the winners took place on 18 September at the Belém Cultural Centre, at  the 4th edition of the Solidarity Prize promoted by BPI and the "la Caixa" Foundation. This award aims to support projects that promote the transition and reintegration into working life of vulnerable young people and adults, as well as the promotion of their basic needs.

The Talent Workshops project, as part of the most recent LD Mission in Portugal, will contribute to the socio-professional integration of young people in the districts of Caparica and Pragal and enhance youth employability, through the development of businesses in the artistic area.

Concha Tello, project coordinator, stresses that "there is a high artistic potential in the territory, as a result of the cultural diversity of its population and that this human capacity is manifested in a very expressive way in the artistic-sports talents that have stood out there".

The mission of Caparica-Pragal, which began in 2018, after the invitation addressed to LD by the Portuguese Province on a community development programme in the towns of Caparica-Pragal, specifically in their neighbourhoods, integrated in the S. Francisco Xavier Parish of Caparica.
